About City Merchant Turkiye
A wee change...
Thought we’d try a wee bit of something different, made a good choice. Food lovely & service great, loved the free bread with garlic butter to start! Beers not overpriced although could’ve been a bit colder, all in all, a really good meal.
Fantastic Restaurant, Staff and Food!
We were warmly welcomed and seated straight away and the staff had the correct menus on the table for us arriving. The choice and quality of the food and wine was fantastic. The dishes were authentic and plentiful. The staff were so friendly and happy to help and make suggestions.
Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine in the Merchant City
Formerly a Glasgow institution serving up Scottish dishes, the City Merchant has transformed itself into City Merchant Turkiye. Turning its focus from Scotland to sunnier climes, it now specialises in offering the taste of Turkey and the Mediterranean to city centre diners.
Seafood, shish and sarma
At City Merchant Turkiye, you can enjoy Levantine favourites in a cosy and casual setting.
Starters include fried calamari rings in batter; chicken wings cooked on a charcoal grill, and pan-fried king prawns with halep sauce. Veggies can sample vine leaves stuffed with mixed rice and vegetables.
Main courses feature charcoal grilled salmon fillet; grilled lamb shish with fries, and vegetarian moussaka.
If you have room for dessert, then expect Turkish classics such as baklava and sultac rice pudding jostling for your attention alongside treats like chocolate fudge cake.
